Hello Sweet Things,
Things of late do not feel normal. With Lillian gone, there is an emptyness that will take sometime to heal.
Having Heather in my home is the best therapy for her at this time.
From time to time either her parents or one of her two Uncles stay in Lillian's home for security sake.
Lillian's will (a trust really) help make things move more easily, at first Heather thought that eventually her grandmother's house would be sold, but instead, the house has been left to her parents, with equal value portions of money to her uncles.
This is good really, her parents had to sell their home at a loss, when her father was un-employed, so even with Lillian gone physically she is still reaching out and helping family. Lillian left Heather a letter, a lovely long letter, Heather reads it every night before she goes to sleep. It helps encourage her to continue with what she is doing.
But everything is going to shift slowly, everyone wanting to make sure everything is done right.
Baby Sis is going to come up and visit with me for a week, so Joe is going to retreat to his apartment for a while, as he says "one man in a house full of women is courtin' danger, if I leave the seat up all three of you will come down on my head". That doesn't mean he'll stay away, but with only one spare bedroom there won't be much space.
I'm looking forward to seeing my sister. I've taken the week of Halloween off as vacation, with so much of my work already edging over to my associates I can aford to play "Hooky".
But I have to admit, I'm feeling a bit lost without Lillian's presence, now I must go, Heather is asking when are we going to the Spirit Store to get a few Halloween decorations, I think we will both welcome that distraction and I need to buy candy for our eventual trick and treaters.
Kisses Sweet Things
